Touch screens are coming to Eee PC Netbooks next year , but you only need to wait until next month if you require a touch screen on an Asus all-in-one PC--and live in England. British retailer Play.com is taking preorders for the Eee All-in-One Touch-Screen PC. It's priced at £399.99 ($681) with a ship date of November 20. The system features a 15.6-inch display and features specs similar to those found on Eee PC Netbooks, including a 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive, a Webcam, and Windows XP. It features a single (and not multi) touch-screen display and also ships with a wired keyboard and mouse. It has integrated stereo speakers but appears to take a pass on an optical drive. 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and Gigabit Ethernet are your networking options.

Considering you can get similar specs, minus the touch screen and 5 or 6 inches of display space, for hundreds less on the Eee PC 901, it's hard to see this Eee PC all-in-one meet with the same success as its Netbook brethren. More likely, it'll be a touch-screen version of the underwhelming Eee Box desktop. Nonetheless, we'll keep an eye out for its arrival on our shores.
